In this time of heightened activity and urgency, we invite you to join us for a half-day of learning and discussion on the role of arts and advocacy. We will cover the legal rules of the road for arts organizations to engage in legislation, campaigning, and lobbying at the federal, state, and local levels—not only at election time but throughout the year on issues ranging from public health, social justice and racial equity, arts recovery, and community investments in arts and culture.

We will also hear from nationally recognized Los Angeles artists Patrisse Cullors, Lauren Halsey, and Luis Rodriguez, on the role of advocacy, justice, and community making in their vision, their work, and the organizations they lead in a conversation moderated by Alberto Retana. President and CEO of Community Coalition.

The goals for this engagement are to share knowledge, build community, and hold space for leaders and organizations that are deeply involved in arts advocacy work, specifically those led by and serving communities of color.

The Department seeks to highlight creatives and artists as changemakers and visionaries who reflect our current conditions, illuminate an alternative path forward and provide the inspirational stamina that can mobilize and nourish communities as we look ahead to 2021.
